My work focusses on denitrification in marine sediments, with special emphasis on denitrifying bacteria and their trophic interactions with small invertebrate grazers and microphytobenthos. I use a multidisciplinary approach, in which both field measurements and lab experiments are conducted to identify and quantify the importance of these interactions on denitrification.
